Most amazing doctor. I had a very complicated case. My orthopaedic surgeon looked for a year to find a hand surgeon to take my case and Dr. Mitten agreed to help me. Dr. Mitten accomplished the impossible and I still have use of my hand and can work. When nobody else would consider taking on such a difficult task, he didn't think twice. It was a long road, but he went above and beyond for me on several occasions .

Been to Dr Mitten in the past for unrelated conditions... After a nerve conduction study showing moderate carpal tunnel syndrome & a frayed carpal nerve, I was able to get in to see DrM in less than a month and had CT surgery: fast & effective! Stitches come out tomorrow but feel better already. Great staff, always friendly, love the Urgent Orthopedic venue @ Clinton Crossings! L

Dr. Mitten repaired a thumb tendon for me years ago and the results were excellent. Recently been receiving shots for a trigger finger issue and thumb bone deterioration issue. Office staff is excellent, appointments you are in and out quickly, great listening doctor and excellent support staff. He will always be my hand-man!

Surgically put back together my fx rt wrist. Excellent outcome. 2 weeks after first surgery, he was not 100% satisfied, so a 2nd, more extensive surgery done with rod placement. Dr. Mitten is kind, honest, explains everything, great personality. His nurse, Rebecca Grillo followed me throughout, knew all about my situation; I was able to call her whenever I had a question or concern without having to go through my whole history. She was there in pre op as well. Love this dr/nurse model of care.
